WCA Coaches Conference at Tehran

The ITF West & Central Asia Regional Coaches Conference by BNP Paribas took place at the Esteghlal Tennis Academy in Tehran, Iran on 15-17 October 2016, and was hailed a huge success.

The three-day event, themed ‘Developing better junior players for the future’, saw over 350 coaches from the region descend upon the Iranian capital to absorb all that was on offer.

Delegates were treated to a variety of tennis-specific presentations under the conference theme from both local and international experts, as well as an overview of the progress made in developing tennis in the region over the past two years and plans for the future to continue this development.

The Asian Tennis Federation (ATF), Tennis Federation of the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI), ITF Development Officer for the region, Amir Borghei, and ITF Participation and Coaching Manager, Miguel Crespo, were all delighted at the magnificent enthusiasm for the event shown by coaches within the region, reflected by the stellar number of registrants and the tremendous efforts from all involved in the organisation of this memorable conference.
